Hotel Africa

New short fiction from Africa
Editors: 

Short Story Day Africa's next anthology of innovative short fiction is set in the rooms, the passages, the bars and the lobbies of hotels across the continent, and seeks metafiction exploring Africa as a hotel herself. If these walls could talk, what story would they tell?

RRP:

Check-in... To five-star neon-lit luxury. To budget motels with the option to pay by the hour. To intimate anonymous rooms wiped clean every twenty-four hours or clammy beds where remnants of yesterday's guests still lurk.

Check-in... Lovers, aid workers, businessmen local and foreign, wedding guests, gap-year travellers, volunteer tourists, honeymooners, UN soldiers, politicians, adventure seekers, evangelists, holidaymakers, warmongers, peacekeepers.

Check-in... To hotels made of brick and cement and blood and sweat. Hotels made of corrugated iron and clay and hope and faith. Hotels celebrated, hotels forgotten. Hotels that have served as shelter for the night or refuge when the shots rang out.

Check-in to Hotel Africa.
